5 Worst Times To Be Single
When I’m sick...
I am a 33 year old adult woman, I have my own place, and do not live with my parents anymore. One of the worst times to live alone is when you are sick, and I don't mean have a cold sick. I mean the flu, pneumonia, bronchitis, cannot go to work or drive yourself to urgent care, can't talk, getting out of bed is impossible, even my eyelashes hurt kind of sick. I have been all of those things and have had to take care of myself all by myself.

Taking care of me is not the issue. Luckily, I have amazing parents who have dropped off medicine and juice and have checked up on me when I am sick (blessed beyond measure with those two). It’s the fact that I have to do it all by my damned self. Once, just once, I'd like someone to make my soup for me, go to the pharmacy and pick up my medication for me, pour my glass of juice, and drive me to urgent care. Do you know how hard it is to drive yourself to urgent care when you have bronchitis, pulled muscles from coughing so hard because of the bronchitis, with pneumonia, on top of asthma? Well I do because that just happened to me! Damn, that is a time when being single surely sucked, like sucked really, really, hard.
